Hi everyone! It’s been a while. Life has been so busy…. until now. For so long blogging hadn’t even entered my mind because between work and family there just isn’t enough time in a day to find some peace and quite to take a seat and write a post. I was sitting outside getting some fresh air this morning and told myself to start journaling. Honestly I’ve forgotten what day of the week we’re on a couple of times. And even had to think when the last time I left my house was. I work at a high school so I’ve been out of work for 10 days because of spring break being last week. Then, yesterday we got the news that we’ll be out til April 30th along with the governor issuing a statewide order to stay at home, which I thought took effect yesterday at 4:30 but I just read 12:01 on Wednesday morning. No one can get any information correct. It’s all so confusing and uncertain. I was literally on the computer for hours at a time during my days trying to even create an account to apply for unemployment but only finally was able to yesterday. That was a headache!
On the upside, I’ve been able to be home with my kids, which is what we always wish for. I’m making the most of it even with being stuck at home. Luckily we like in a culdesac and my kids are pretty much the only kids on our street. We’re able to do a lot of bike riding, sidewalk chalk and even painting. We also invested in the PS VR system in February so that’s been something that has been keeping them physically active while it’s raining outside (it’s been raining a lot). What’s not so fun is the mess in my home! It looks like a hurricane went right through my house!
I just spent the last hour reading posts from blogs that I follow and it’s been so comforting for some reason. It’s nice to see the families finding ways to enjoy each others company. There are so many more that I haven’t got to, do a little later I plan to pour me a nice glass of wine (wine has been a real friend after the kids have gone to sleep) and read more posts. I can’t wait!
I hope that you’re all safe and healthy with enough food and toilet paper to last. Personally, my fears for myself are that my students will digress during this period and, if I’m being honest, my financial situation at the end of this. I know a lot of people have the same worries and a lot have it way harder than I do. I’ve been praying for us all every night. I will continue to do so. Have a great day! Until tomorrow…
